It's week thirty-four and I love this project.

Week of : August 19 - August 25.
What happened this week? We were home. We got a date night while my parents were here. Ellerie grew into a more animated person. (Watching her develop might be my favorite new hobby.)
Anything special in the spread? Nope. Just the normal stuff. Tons of photos of Ellerie because that is what I photographed this week.
Techniques this week : I had a little card from Stumptown Coffee that was smaller than 3x4. Instead of mounting it on a card that fit the pocket, I just stapled it into the pocket so it floats. The text on both sides will be visable...I'll leave that pocket "empty" next week.
Overall thoughts : Keeping it simple is helping me get through. I for sure have enough photos of Ellerie to do extra inserts each week, but I've decided to just fill the normal pockets for now. I think at the six month mark I'll have a photo book printed with tons of photos of her. We'll see. I have to figure out the best plan...
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 6 to 5.
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, Fiskars corner rounder, Zig Millenium pen, Rotatrim paper trimmer, Office Depot date stamp, staz-on ink. All photos were printed at home on my HP Photosmart 2575 printer on Office Depot semi-gloss photo paper.Project Life is a memory-keeping system created by Becky Higgins. I use photos, text and stuff to document our life weekly. You can see all the posts from 2012 here and 2013 here. Do you have a question about how I am tackling this project (including anything about the photos)? Check here.
